Reports that USUK torturers and killers will grant themselves immunity

23-05-2004 05:16

How many Tim Mcveaghs will come home this time ?
..after the handover. OK, but that will only apply in Iraq. The ringleaders, Bliar and his hangers-on can still be prosecuted at home for the illegal attack and killing of 8,000 or so and maiming of many more Iraqis.
Maybe they think they can move to Iraq.
How can they sleep at night? How can their spouses and families live with them?
How did they become so delusional, insecure and stupid?

Michael Moore's Anti-Bush film tops Cannes awards

22-05-2004 22:35

so Michael Moore's film won at Cannes, I spose we could all start squabbling about Moore's street creds and his blantant milking of the media to promote his film. But I reckon what he has done should be an example to all activists he is playing power brokers at their own game. wether his film is the business or not its' going in the right direction and everyone should jump on the band wagon and start screaming about the dodgy circumstances surrounding 911 if enough shit hits the fan maybe Bushit will get a face full !!
